Why Setting powder?

I have always loved setting powder! Literally no foundation sits all day without a setting powder on top, I found that out pretty early, and whoooaaa I was matte the first years of wearing it! (loved it a little bit too much)
I know many people that are literally scared of using powder, this is mostly the older generation who grew up with thick and cakey powders that really dried out the skin and made the skin look really, really dry.

A setting powder is not the same thing as a foundation powder, or a regular colored compact face powder. It’s usually a very very fine powder that you don’t feel on the skin.

The mission of a setting powder is to hold the foundation in place all day, to set it, like a primer, but on top instead of underneath.
When you apply a liquid foundation and a setting powder on top you “lock” the foundation. It lasts longer and will be harder to rub off if you or anyone else touches your face. It also controls shine, or can provide more glow if you prefer a dewy powder.

A setting powder can come in different colors (usually slightly tinted) or be translucent. I prefer using a setting powder that it either translucent or a color that is a bit lighter than a persons skin tone because when the pigments in the powder melts together with the foundation they often gets darker than when the powder is dry.
I prefer to apply setting powder with a powder puff on people with oily skin, and with a fluffy brush on people with more dry skin.
I also use setting powder on a bare face to mattify.

There are different types of setting powders, there are powders for oily skin, for combined skin, dry skin, powders with skin caring properties for mature skin, or powders for color correcting.. so make sure to know your skin type and look for a powder that suits YOUR skin type, because all setting powders does not work for everyone.

Are you a powder person?

Above I have listed three setting powders I really like.
1. Paris Berlin Ultra HD Loose Powder – A great setting powder that will even out your skin tone and set the foundation. Available in two shades.
2. Linda Hallberg Cosmetics Infinity Filter – This award winning mineral based powder will keep the moisture in your skin and provide a natural matte finish with a little bit of glow to the skin while blurring out fine lines and pores.. It’s paraben and talc-free. It’s literally an Instagram filter in a jar! Available in three shades.
3. Danessa Myricks Evolution Powder – Can be used as an oil control primer under your foundation, as a setting powder or applied with a damp sponge for more coverage. Minimizes fine lines and pores. Available in nine shades.

Why Base and top coat?

Let’s proceed with not only one, but two WHY-products!
These are also two products I thought were unnessecary before I found out the opposite: Base Coat and Top Coat!
I used to walk around telling myself that nail polish just didn’t work for me, that my nails were to thin, and also, they were always yellow because I didn’t use a base coat. Nail polish barely lasted a day and it was flaking before I walked out the door. I didn’t even bother buying a base coat, because I simply didn’t believe in it. Well, wrong was I!

A Base Coat is basically the same thing as a primer for your eyeshadow (as we talked about yesterday). It doesnt only protect your nails from discoloration and staining, it also makes a great base for your colored nail polish and makes it last longer without chipping.
IF you have to skip the base coat for some reason, make sure to use neutral and light colors, because, reds, yellows, blues and darker colors might stain your nails and turn them yellow. And that might be hard to get rid of.

There are many different kinds of base coats: Filling base coats for uneven nail beds, moisturizing base coats for dry and brittle nails, color correcting base coats if your nails are already stained or discolored,  strenghtening base coats, and many more.. So if you know your nails it’s easy to find a good base coat that suits you, they don’t have to be super expensive to be good!

 

A top coat will protect and seal the color and make your mani last longer. It will provide a shiny, or  if you like – a matte finish to your mani.
By using a top coat you can actually keep your manicure for a couple of extra days.

There are also a lot of different top coats, all from matte, to shiny, to fast drying, to strengthening..

 

Both products are well invested if you want your manicure to last longer, because they work, I got to know the hard way 😉

 

Tip:
Don’t forget to clean your nails from dirt, creams and oils before you paint them, for a longer lasting manicure.
